I would really like to be in on this discussion. We currently use google docs for our submissions, then outlook to schedule and confirm, and finally input in to the education calendar. So many steps, and so many chances for human error. We would like to refine this before the start of the new school year.

Scheduling Widget for School Tours

June 21st 2018

Can anyone recommend a WordPress plugin for scheduling school tours? We currently use an online submission form that sends me an email which I then review, check our calendar, and email the requester back with options.

Other works edited by Anderson are a little more up-to-date and may be better suited for your program.
